"The one thing I was told by many brides that they wish they had at their wedding was a videographer. I wasn't planning on getting one, but after thinking about it, having your special day captured on film is something that you can treasure for a lifetime. I found Best Made Videos with their wonderful and positive reviews and I was not disappointed when I booked them! Reid and Jeff were beyond professional, punctual, flexible and helped with so much more than just videotaping our wedding day. I got my video highlight back really fast and it was of amazing quality. I had to watch it over and over again just to relive that day and admire the stunning video itself. I can tell that Reid and his team are very passionate about videography and take their roles and jobs very seriously. I would highly HIGHLY recommend brides and grooms to get a videographer and to have Best Made Videos capture it. This will definitely be my little treasure from my wedding day."
The Pablo wedding is far and away one of our most recognizable weddings. It is the joyous meeting of two people, their cultures and families, and a massive celebration of tradition and heritage. On a temperate August day, Tim and Kaleena met at the isolated Cedar Springs in Port Orchard and brought a little of the island life with them. It also helps that Tim is both wickedly hilarious and deeply emotional by just about everything the day had to offer, so be sure to laugh and cry at the same time while you watch the video!
The early morning preparation for weddings is often an exciting, anxiety-inducing period of time where you count down the minutes to the ceremony that will unite you and your fiancé. These periods of time also produce some of our funniest and memorable moments, especially when you have as many big personalities as you do in the Pablo wedding. Joking around with his party, Tim—with cuss words flying—cracks jokes and gives hugs with his friends and family.
Surrounded by lush vegetation and a sun that twinkles in through the leaves, Tim and Kaleena met for their first look along with their family. Following their tender first look, the guys all line up for some of the funniest moments in a photoshoot we’ve ever witnessed. From wisecracks (“maybe I should suck in my gut”) to hilarious and silly poses, these guys sure know how to party and it certainly makes you wonder if you could hire them for your own wedding.
The ceremony itself, however, continued to show Tim’s comedic streak. Starting off by announcing he’s already crying, and losing it a couple times throughout, you will be fighting back both laughs and chuckles as he soldiers on through a delicate speech that declares his love for Kaleena. In response, Kaleena’s speech is a little less funny and a whole lot more emotional as she too starts to break down partway through, which only makes Tim worse, but these two are such suckers for each other that it’s entirely adorable.
The reception to follow on the breathtaking estate shows a melding of cultures. With mosquito spray, leis, traditional attire, and even dancing, it’s like they transported one of the islands right into the middle of Washington. Both genuine and beautiful to witness, it is just another example of the unique and delightful weddings out there in the world to see, even if it isn’t part of your own culture.
Following the bouquet toss, a rather raunchy garter dance, and some stunning photos with the sun setting behind them, Tim and Kaleena set off as husband and wife to start a new life together. Thanks once again to Tim and Kaleena for choosing Best Made Videos to shoot their wedding! We hope the New Year is treating you right!
